Blue Phoenix Books is located in the Historic John Rowe Building in beautiful Downtown Alpena, along with My Glass Wings. Come in and browse two great stores, Books in front Glass in back!


If it is hard for you to get here in winter, we offer the ability to order books online and have them shipped directly to you! Blue Phoenix Books wants to make it as easy as possible for you support us even when you're not here - to make sure we're still here the next time you visit.

As a full service independent bookstore we have all the latest paperback and hardcover best sellers, as well as each month's IndieNext picks, the favorite books of indie booksellers across the country.

We also stock a large selection of Children and Young Adult books and a wide range of Classics. While, you're here, peruse our Bargain Used Book Section and our selection of works from local artists.

Blue Phoenix Books is not only providing a venue to purchase books, but a place to relax, meet neighbors and discover local talent. Visit the coffee bar with fresh baked goods by M & M Bakery, sit down and enjoy the free wi-fi or play a board game with friends. We invite you to stay awhile!
